Jay-Z refers to a fight which was caught on video where Jim Jones and Camron were chased out of Rucker Park.
The track sounds kinda weak and we can likely expect a Dipset diss track going a little harder within the next few days. Jay-Z sounds desperate addressing Jim Jones after asking “WHO IS JIM JONES” on a recent Hot 97 interview. Jay-Z just helped Jim Jones sell a lot more records by going after him, Jay-Z looks to have taken the bait from Jimmy. Spotted at Realtalk NY. All in all, Jay-Z is too big and too reputable to even be addressing Jim Jones.
UPDATE: Jim Jones speaking on Jay’s new diss track via AHH, Jim says he is putting his response out tonight:
AllHipHop.com: Let’s cut to the chase. What do you think of Jay’s answer [“Brooklyn High”] ?
Jim Jones: Personally? It’s a couple feelings. To get Jay-Z to bite the bullet was a hell of a chess game, ‘cause he thinks he’s always playin’ chess. So right now, [I got a] check for his ass, ‘cause he sold for the bait. He said Jim Jones’ name a couple weeks ago on HOT 97, that was his first mistake, nobody ever thought he’d do that – If I’m supposedly not on his level, when he’s supposed to be this rich dude and such this gangsta. [laughs] That was his first mistake. And then he bit the bullet and did the remix to “We Fly High” [titled “Brooklyn High”], which I appreciate. He did two verses, and that registers as BDS, ‘cause it’s over two minutes. [Editor’s Note: BDS is Broadcast System Data, which records the frequency of a song’s play on a radio station] So what I’m gonna do is, I’m gonna put my verse to it, then we got the official Jim Jones [and] Jay-Z remix. He ain’t even spittin’ right on that joint, so he kinda disappointed me ‘cause I thought he would’ve came harder. But for the people, I’m gonna put my verse on it tonight, so we gonna have the official Jay-Z [and] Jim Jones remix, and I’m gonna have it tomorrow. The BDS is already runnin’, so I appreciate you Jay, givin’ me extra BDS. That’ll probably take me up another thousand spins or something like that.
